We live in a chaotic world. You may feel increasingly more anxious, overwhelmed, or possibly depressed. Life may even feel unmanageable. You might find yourself trying to fill internal voids with external things, such as alcohol, drugs, food, sex, or relationships. Experiences from your past could leave you feeling stuck in your present. Change can be terrifying, and taking that first step may feel impossible. * I became a therapist in Chicago to help others see their worth and start to take ownership of their lives. Despite what that non-stop loop of negative self-talk in your head may tell you, you are good enough just as you are.

Hello, and welcome to my page! I work with women who have a wide variety of concerns. It’s my belief that people develop symptoms because they are using old ways of coping that are no longer effective. I think that every symptom once served a purpose and that change can occur by looking at how and why these symptoms developed, while at the same time trying new behaviors.

Traditional talk therapy is helpful, but it doesn’t go deep enough. To create lasting change in your life, you need to understand where your feelings are coming from. Do you really know why you feel the way you do? Intellectual understanding is just scratching the surface. Whatever you are having trouble with will keep reoccurring if you don't go deeper. You can positively change, not only your thoughts, but the way that your body and emotions react to situations and the people around you.

My role is to help those who are seeking out their paths and to manage the difficulties that life can present. I was told early on in my education that "life is a series of losses and a therapist's role is to help folks manage these losses." Loss does not just include the death of a loved one but it could represent other forms of loss such as identity. I provide support and validation for these losses that may have originally been invalidated by being told "just get over it" or "pull yourself up by the boot straps."

Our experiences in life can present us with challenges, stress, depression, anxiety and emotional turmoil in the here and now. Everyone can benefit from emotional support to help navigate the difficulties of life, especially when our own coping and problem skills don't seem to manage what we are experiencing. Initiating therapy is the start of building our coping skills in navigating through the course of life and achieving our goals. I believe that the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is critical in a non-judgmental and safe setting. I want to help you achieve your goals and reach your full potential.

Hello! As a Masters graduate from Antioch University, I completed their Military PTSD Specialization and am uniquely qualified to work with the specific needs of our vets. But trauma and PTSD do not begin or end with our veterans. I completed a year of Masters training at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center where I came face to face with many of the same issues experienced by vets, but caused by lifelong exposures to familial, societal and institutionalized homophobia. As a result, I am keenly aware of how trauma affects EVERYONE...even those who have lived a "normal" life.
